Welcome to my home tour!!! My home was just featured in Style At Home … if you haven’t grabbed your copy,  you should … OR you can follow along here as I walk you through every room!!! It goes without saying that a home should reflect those who live there, but sometimes it’s what a previous owner leaves behind that lends the most character to a space. When I first set foot in the backyard of my dream home, I spotted a tiny abode just a few yards away, partially obscured by branches and subtly built into a hill. With the letters “THE LAW” written across the top, left behind from the previous owner . I was told it means ‘the hill’ in Irish, but I’m not really sure. It definitely added that sentimental value and mysterious character that I was looking for.

What turned out to be a guest house became a main selling feature for me. Still to this day it has become one of my favourite features about my entire house!!! I’ve always loved the idea of a guest house, but I never thought I’d be able to have my own because they’re not that common. We’re constantly entertaining, so we like having a place where people can sleep after sitting around the fire with us.

I like to compare the Casita to a European cottage, with  glass double doors opening up onto a magnificent over loved garden. It even has and charming white rooftop deck fitted with a picket-style railing that offers picturesque views of the Okanagan. It is equipped with a toilet, shower, bed and coffee maker … what else would you need!?!
